How Ayurveda can Support Your Family

Posted By Bija on May 01, 2019

Last week my daughter would not get moving—she was sitting on the ground resting her head on a chair. I’m telling her what we need to do that night­­—which included getting up off the ground—but she wouldn’t budge.

Then I remembered my chat with Bija Repta about how Ayurveda can help families, and I knew exactly what to do next.

We hear about Ayurveda (doshas and constitutions) in yoga circles a lot, but it’s also helpful for families. It can help parents and families understand each other’s behavior in a whole new light.

It can also help us understand ourselves growing up, and why we may have had very different experiences than our siblings.

Bija Repta, Ayurvedic practitioner shares her insights on parenting from the sister science of yoga, Ayurveda.

Did this help you understand yourself or your family? As always, we love hearing from you in the comments below.

This vata-gal’s going to take off her shoes and walk on the earth.

With love,
Carolyn (and Bija)

Bija Repta directs the 100-hr Down Dogs and Doshas: An Integrated approach to Ayurveda & Yoga beginning May 17th in Owen Sound, Ontario. This is the last time Bija will be offering Down Dogs and Doshas!

Do you feel like you never have enough time, energy, or patience as a mom? Carolyn’s got your back! For creative, simple solutions and a beautiful community of support, the Mystic Moms online course is now open for registration until May 13th.

Thank you for this video! At first I felt overwhelmed trying to figure out what my Dosha and my kids Dosha might be and how I need to parent them but then you shared that it doesn’t need to be perfect and it’s just one aspect of this parenting journey. Thank you thank you! Excited to apply some of this. The simple examples of sinking cold water with cucumbers to cool my child down if she’s heated up - gentle and easy.
